AMMAN — Reigning champion Manaf Hijjawi is just one victory away from securing the Jordan Rotax Max Karting Challenge, which is the national championship organised by Jordan Motorsport, according to the Jordan Motorsport Media Service. 

The impressive youngster continued his clean sweep of the rounds this season by clinching round three at Jordan Speed Centre on Monday night, opening up a 53-point advantage at the top of the driver standings. It means that he is just one victory away from securing the title, and a place in the Rotax Max Challenge finals that will be held later this year in Brazil.

Hijjawi took his third win of the season ahead of Ameer Najjar, with Abdullah Dulaimi coming in third and Rakan Qumuq, who is second in the championship standings, coming in fourth on the night.

Hamzah Qumuq cemented his place at the top of the Juniors standings with victory, while Faisal Nashko won the Mini Max round to also lead the way in the championship.

The Jordan Rotax Max Karting Challenge will now head into its grand finale with rounds four and five being held back-to-back on August 17 and 18.
